Title: Phase diagram for carbon dioxide
Caption: The major pieces of the phase diagram for carbon dioxide are shown. Each state and phase change is also illustrated with a molecular level picture.
Notes: If we graph the physical state a species exists in at various temperatures and pressures, a phase diagram results. This allows us to predict states and see how pressure affects values such as boiling point and melting point.
Keywords: phase diagram, liquid, solid, gas, phase change, physical change, critical point, triple point, critical temperature, critical pressure
